Martha Stewart Bridal Show in Chicago

Monday, March 25th, 2013

It’s been a busy March around here with events, trips to NYC and a bridal show in Chicago. Our friends at Martha Stewart Weddings were in town a few weeks ago hosting a bridal show at the Radisson Blu Hotel.  Martha Stewart Weddings created a table with a few of the items shown on their 2013 Winter Issue and they wanted us to create an arrangement inspired by the cover which featured Blake Lively’s bridal bouquet. We deviated a little (because who wants to copy someone else’s design!) but we were very happy what we designed.

 Not only we got to mingle with some wonderful couples we also got to reconnect with some of our favorite vendors but also meet some new ones!  Thank you to Anthony and Amy at Martha Stewart Weddings for thinking of us again!

Thanks to all the couples and vendors we got to meet a few weeks ago at the Love at Breath Taking Heights Bridal Show at the Metropolitan Club at the Willis Tower. It was a pleasure meeting all of you. Thank you to M&M Rentals for the gold rim china, silverware, glassware, and gold chivari chairs and Tipsycake for the mini gold chevron patterned cake and Kenny Kim Photography for providing these pictures.

Gold sequins tableclothWe had a a lot of brides asking about the tablecloth we used. We actually created this overlay for the bridal show to stay with the current trends of gold, muted colors and pops of antique pink. We hope you liked it. I don’t suggest you use this cloth everywhere but it would look spectacular on a head table or escort card table!

Bridal Expo at Drury Lane Theatre

Thursday, September 13th, 2012

We had a lot of fun last night at the Bridal Expo at the Drury Lane Theatre. We created a vintage elegant tablescape of milk glass vases, with hydrangeas, caramel antique roses, pink majolica spray roses, jasmine vine, peach finesse roses and of course my white dinner plate dahlias whom just above everyone seemed to love.



Our bridal bouquet hosted patience garden roses, caramel antique roses pink majolica roses, pink astilbe, dusty miller, blushing bride proteas and pieris japonica.



We wanted to thank the Amy & Bill at the Bridal Expo Chicago for their warm welcome, Windy City Linen for the gorgeous runners and napkins, Tablescapes for all the vintage rentals and last but not least,  Jill at Chicago Farm Tables for letting us use their beautiful locally made farm table which we absolutely love.
